Parkland Fuel Corporation is nearing completion of the required work for the 2020 Burnaby refinery turnaround and has begun the startup sequence for the facility.
In statement, the company explained: "We expect an approximate two-week process to reach full operational capability when accounting for additional coronavirus preventative safety measures. COVID-19 has required Parkland to change processes and procedures in response to guidance from Provincial health authorities. This has led to a decrease in the number of staff on site and lower productivity.
“I would like to thank the Parkland team and contractors for all their hard work during this maintenance event,” said Ryan Krogmeier, SVP, supply, trading, refining and HSE. “We are proud of the outstanding safety results to date and the effort exhibited by everyone involved.”
